  • Instagram posts in partnership with @covidup2date, an Instagram page with 20K followers run by Hopkins medical students to amplify the importance of pediatric vaccinations, provide telemedicine tips, and explain self-isolation techniques.
  • Projects on hypertension, food insecurity, and health insurance are in the works!
